Sample of Porcelain Tile
These artistic creations are completely hand painted and designed around the customer's taste. Each piece of tile is handled several times, as it is hand painted with a series of colored glazes. After glazing, the tile goes through four firings in the kiln. The temperate that the tiles are fired at is higher than that of fine china so the glazes are truly baked into the tile for a lifetime of color and durability. The painted tile is scratch resistant and can be scrubbed with cleaning agents commonly used on tile, as they will not affect the fired glaze.
We offer 6 by 6 inch or 12 by 12 inch porcelain tiles as shown below. Porcelain tile is more durable than the standard ceramic tile. This is due to the fact that if a chip occurs in the tile, the texture and color of porcelain will run all the way through verses ceramic tile where the color is only on the surface. If you prefer, our artists will paint on tile that you supply.
Tiles that will be used for decorative flooring will need to be grouted on site.
For those who want the look of hand painted tile with half the cost, we offer our 6 by 6 inch porcelain tile with grapevine reproductions. These tiles have 3 different connecting designs that have been reproduced from a popular grapevine pattern. The images are sealed onto the plain tile with a clear glaze and then fired once in the kiln. Reproduction tiles will not have the same durability as the hand painted tiles.
- The average lead-time for painted tile is 4 to 6 weeks.
- Each piece is a custom creation and may vary slightly from the original shown on this page.
- Please note that once all custom art pieces are finalized, they may not be returned.
